Glotman Simpson Group of Companies has won the 2002 B.C. Steel Design Award, Architecture division, for the Commercial Street Station, one of the last lines constructed on the Skytrain’s new Millennium Line. The awards were given in November for outstanding steel structures by the B.C. chapter of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction.
The Commercial Street station, located at the intersection between the existing and new Skytrain lines near the Grandview Cut area, is constructed with a unique assembly of structural steel struts resembling tree branches. The station is linked to the renovated Broadway Station on the existing line with a curved steel truss pedestrian bridge.
“It is an honour to be recognized by our peers in the industry for our work on a structure that will serve the community’s transportation needs for years to come,” said firm principal Geoff Glotman, P.Eng.
The company also received an honourable mention in the CISC B.C. awards for the structural design of the porte-cochere to the Westin Bayshore Hotel in downtown Vancouver.
Glotman Simpson recently won an Award of Excellence in the Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards 2002 for One Wall Centre, the tallest tower in Vancouver.
